Stephen ‘Twitch’ Boss died without will; wife Allison Holker files for half of estate

Beloved dancer, DJ, and television personality who was widely known for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and So You Think You Can Dance, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, died by suicide on December 13, 2022. It has since been revealed that by passed away without a will.

Earlier this week, his wife, Allison Holker, filed a petition in Los Angeles for his half of their share estate, along with routine court documents proving their marriage and that he did not have a will. The estate includes his production company’s investment account, as well as royalties from his work with Disney and the Screen Actors Guild. Documents show that at the time of their marriage Boss had a net worth of “nil” thus making the assets outlined in the petition community property.

The pair married in December 2013, after meeting on So You Think You Can Dance. They shared three children, Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.
